How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Warning Signs You Need to Know to Avoid a Sewer Line Plumbing Emergency

When it comes to plumbing, it is typically out of sight, out of mind. As such, not many homeowners will pay any attention to their sewer lines. Nevertheless, your sewer lines are crucial for the overall functioning of your residence as they are tasked with eliminating anything that has to do with water. This means everything from the kitchen, bathrooms and more is directed to the sewer lines. If the sewer lines become backed up, it can have an adverse effect on your home. To avoid a sewer line plumbing emergency, it is prudent that you know how to spot problems with your sewer line before they become exacerbated. Below are some warning signs of a backedup sewer.

Several drains in your home are clogged

A clogged drain is not an unusual occurrence in your home. This is especially common in the bathroom due to the amount of grease, hair and biofilm that these drains are exposed to. However, if you begin to notice that there are multiple clogs in your home, it could be a warning signing of impending sewer line problems. This is especially true if you notice clogged drains in drains that are rarely in use such as a guest bathroom, a mudroom sink and more. It would be ideal to call a plumber post haste before the sewer line is completely backed up.

Water backing up in multiple drains

If you are using your plumbing and notice that water has started backing up at a different drain, chances are there is a sewer mishap waiting to happen. For example, if you are flushing the toilet then begin to hear water gurgling in your bathtub, this would be indicative of a clog in your drainage system. The water being used is looking for an alternative route to use hence causing it to back up in a different drainage line. It would be best to hire a plumber to determine the source of the clog and have it fixed before your sewer line backs up and blocks all the drains in the home.

Bubbles in different plumbing sources

If you have a clog, the process of water trying to pass through it will cause air to become trapped in the drainage system. When you use your plumbing, for example by flushing the toilet you begin to notice bubbles forming as the water is trying to drain. The first thing you should do is check if this is happening at one plumbing source of at different areas in your home. Bubbles in all your plumbing sources would be a red flag for impending sewer line problems.
